Sing Song Yoga Kids Yoga App – Teacher Testimonial
Thank you Kathy for sharing your experiences with using the Sing Song Yoga Kids Yoga App with your students! We so appreciate you taking time out of your busy life to do so!
Click on the video below to hear what Kathy has to say about her experiences:
“I’m a reading specialist in an elementary school. I service developing readers grades K-5th. I started using the Sing Song Yoga app this year as a way to transition my students from their regular classroom into the more intense instruction that I give them. For the first few minutes of our thirty minutes together we [do one of the poses]. The students are completely relaxed and very quiet. Then we go into our instruction and I can tell as a result of the Sing Song Yoga that they are much focused and calm and centered. My students enjoy it so much that when we walk… to my classroom… they ask me… what pose are we going to do today? I highly recommend the Sing Song Yoga [Kids Yoga] App to any age elementary student”
Thanks again Kathy!

New Parent & Child Kids Yoga Class
Young children and loving adults make for a perfect kids’ yoga combination! We had our inaugural Parent and Child Sing Song Yoga class today. It was such a blast! The parents were fabulously good sports!
Our traditional live Sing Song Yoga kids’ yoga class invites kids whose ages range from about 5 to 11. And over the past year or so we have continued to have parents inquire about their toddlers and preschoolers being able to join.
So we have finally answered the call. For this kids’ yoga class we have changed things up a bit designing it to be specifically for the youngest yogi! We shortened the class to 30 minutes, have added some movement and parents, and now happily accommodate children ages 2-6.
We enjoyed some traditional poses today but also added in heaps of movement! Thanks so much to our young yogis and parents alike who made for a really fun first class!
For more information on this and other Sing Song Yoga classes see our website. To do more Kids’ Yoga at home or in school, check out our new Sing Song Yoga Kid’s Yoga App in the Apple App Store as well as www.singsongyoga.com for general information about our program.

Gratitude Before the Storm
I could barely utter the word seizure ever since a decade ago when my 30-something-year-old brother had an unexpected seizure, never having had one before. So recently when my 20-month-old little man had a febrile seizure it was scary to say the least. A febrile seizure is one brought on by a fever in very young children and are typically benign. It helped immensely that I was aware of this type of seizure and felt assured that he would be fine while going through the challenge. Frightening but manageable.
My husband and I, over the week or so prior to the seizure, had been increasingly forgetting to stay in the moments of gratitude with our quite active twin toddlers. We were tending to get wrapped up in the moments of chaos with things being knocked over, pulled down, dumped out, torn up and thrown over our deck. The chasing, redirecting, reminding and repeating were dominating our thought process as well as our conversations.
After the seizure that day we were more than grateful to see our little man coming around to being himself again. We were thrilled to say “yep, our little dude is back to himself” when he chucked a stuffed animal across the room to initiate a game of catch. I’d never been so grateful for the flinging of a toy!
As a whole we do strive to stay in the moments and enjoy this stage of life. We do stop and simply take in the moments much of the time. But often times we allow our mindfulness to dwindle, getting caught up in the busyness of life, until something forces us to remember to do so.
Not only is life precious, but it’s the tiny moments that make it so. Striving to live in gratitude and fully experience these little moments, in the absence of a storm, is fully worth striving for!
